The New Information State: Workshop Schedule

SIG Information Ethics & Policy
1/2 Day Workshop 
October 28, 2017 from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Abstract: In today’s milieu of fake news, misinformation, and generalized distrust of institutions, information ethics and policy affects everyone, across different information science research areas. In this workshop, we will analyze these changes to the informational state and discuss how we can address them through three themes: information ethics and policy across information science, engagement with policymakers, and pedagogy for information ethics and policy. Workshop participants are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways and will leave the workshop with tangible products that can be used in research and teaching.
